POLICE have released new CCTV footage in a renewed appeal for witnesses following an attempted robbery at a Post Office in Rhyl.

Two men entered Highfield Park Post Office and shop in Churton Road armed with an instrument, believed to be a crowbar, on Wednesday, September 4 at 9.20pm.

Both men are described as white, about 5’ 7 tall and of medium build.

One man was wearing a light grey coloured hooded jacket, shorts and trainers, whilst his accomplice wore a dark blue, possibly black hooded jacket with jeans and trainers. Both wore hoods over their heads.

DC Gareth Greene, investigating officer, said: “The men attempted to rob the store but left empty handed running away in the direction of Y Gorlan. Although the staff were clearly shaken no one was injured and this appears to have been an isolated incident.

“It’s now three months since the incident and I am hoping the renewed appeal and CCTV images may jog someone’s memory and help identify the men. I also think it’s important we reinforce that although this is now 12 weeks old we are still investigating and still have every intention of bringing the offenders to justice.

“Offences of this nature are rare in the area and we have made great strides in reducing overall crime and I hope with the continued support of the community we can also identify and arrest those responsible for this attempted robbery.”

Anyone with information relating to this incident is asked to contact North Wales Police on 101 or alternatively contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 quote reference RC13147744.
